I started watching Awkward because a) all three seasons were on Netflix b) Jenna (main character) was on One Tree Hill. I was skeptical at first because it's on MTV and well, MTV isn't exactly known for good television. I won't lie to you and say it's an award winning show -- it's not, but it's one of those shows that has a lot to say. But it doesn't take itself too seriously while tackling real issues like teenage sex, jealousy, living in the digital age, and the pressure of being a girl. It's brash and it's hilarious. I really like that the characters and plot are evolving in a positive way.

What I really love though is Tamara. Tamara is the opposite of me (and her BFF Jenna for that matter). She's loud, abrasive, and she gets what she wants. There's no question about how she feels and this makes her a very strong character. Her style is the absolute best. From her signature fiery red hair to her accessories, she's fabulous. What drew me in is how she's either mixing prints like a champ or wearing the most tailored fit-and-flare's with unique prints. I would totally live in her closet.
